Textiles, clothing, shoes and accessories recycling - weekly collection


How to deal with waste if you are self-isolating

Latest government advice here.

Weekly textiles, clothing, shoes and accessories recycling

Leave your bins in a clearly visible place at the edge of your property by 6.30am on collection day. We work as normal on bank holiday Mondays and Good Friday. What if a collection is missed?

Please leave textiles, clothing, shoes and accessories out for recycling in a clear, sealed, labelled bag next to your other recycling.

You can recycle:

  • Clothes
  • Home textiles such as curtains quilt-covers, pillow-cases etc (not the pillows, duvets or cushions themselves please - just the covers)
  • Paired shoes
  • Bags and belts

DON'T put your textiles in your green recycling bin. They can't be easily separated from the other stuff, and may lead to the whole load being rejected. Right thing, right bin.

Please don't recycle:

  • Pillows, duvets and cushions - we can only recycle the covers
  • Heavily soiled or worn items

What's happening at the tip?

Surrey County Council has announced that its Community Recycling Centre (the tip) at Blenheim Road has re-opened but will ONLY accept garden waste and bagged refuse until further notice.

The site will be open 9am - 6pm seven days a week until further notice. Social distancing will be in place within the site. Traffic management measures will be in place in the approach roads (as normal, approach via Felstead Road by the Kia dealership). Expect significant queues.

Please note that the tip is operated by Surrey County Council, not Epsom & Ewell. Any queries should be directed to Surrey County Council.
